I absolutely love blogging but post-writing I admit I'm filled with the desire to share! That said, according to some statistic I could be making up roughly nine blogs are created every minute.
How do you guys get an audience....and then keep it? I've noticed that with a lot of follow-for-follow exchanges, this results in people reading each others blogs and following for a few posts but after awhile it becomes simply too much (I'm guilty of this!) and the relationship fizzles, especially if you want to expand. In such cases, I've realized engaging content keeps me rooted to a blog. But I have to hear about it first...and given the sheer number of blogs I'm not as inclined to visit because there are so many and I don't know where to begin.
So...I thought we could brainstorm! Share your most tried and true methods for keeping and maintaining an audience, and share what turns you off of a blog.
You are so right Shelly...being different in what you write on your blog..why just last week I posted on my blog that I was going "raw" ..everybody thought I meant naked and my site was overwhelmed with hits..then they discovered I meant "Vegan" the hits stopped..some even tried to withdraw their hits..oh well I was in one of my humor moods, couldn't resist..sorry..

You're doing the right thing with socializing on this site and hopefully others. Blog tours will help. Keep getting your name out there. Don't overload yourself. I keep to a weekly blog, but I'm soon to be adding another blog for book reviews. That one will have irregular posts.
